About the Sri Rajarajeswari Temple Bookstore

This site is the online version of the Temple Bookstore of the Sri Rajarajeswari Peetam, located near Rochester, NY. Please see below for contact information. 

Our mission is to provide resources that will aid all devotees to learn about and come closer to Divine Mother Sri Rajarajeswari. Towards this end, we offer mantra and puja CDs, puja manuals, and supplies for performing homas and pujas. We also offer online sponsorship for those who would like to sponsor festivals or pujas at the Temple and receive the sacred prasadam in the mail. 

This site, like the Temple and its bookstore, is run entirely by Temple volunteers. Please let us know how we can help you.

About the Sri Vidya Temple Society

The Sri Vidya Temple Society (SVTS) is religious organization registered as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. SVTS was created for the sake of running and maintaing the Sri Vidya Temple, also known as the Sri Rajarajeswari Peetam. SVTS is entirely run by volunteers who are also devotees and upasakas of Sri Rajarajeswari.

About the Sri Rajarajeswari Peetam

The Temple was founded by Sri Chaitanyananda, more commonly known as "Haran Aiya," or just "Aiya." Our main murtis include granite vigrahas of Ganapati and Rajarajeswari Devi as well as a Sivalingam made from lapis lazuli. Although we celebrate the main Tamil Saiva festivals and rituals, most Temple pujas are done according to the Sri Vidya tradition. 

One of the most unique aspects of the Temple is that all ceremonies are performed by volunteers. There are no hired priests or employees. Anyone who has Sri Vidya diksha and who learns the puja mantras and procedures may perform the Temple pujas. We believe that Divine Mother is the mother for all beings, and that we all have the right to love, learn about, and worship our own mother. Therefore, no one is ever barred from learning or practicing because of caste, creed, gender or ethnicity.

We welcome all visitors and devotees to come and experience our Temple firsthand.  We always say that this is a "Learning Temple," and so we are always happy to answer questions or provide a guided tour. For more information about the Temple, please visit our main site at www.srividya.org.
